The ginkgo tree and its fanning leaves that have dotted sunny hilltops for more than 200 million years have braced the light and cold—and war and peace—longer than any other tree species known to man.
Indigenous to Japan, China and Korea and frequently the muse of many Asian masterpieces, the ginkgo tree has persevered. For its constant presence, golden silhouettes and medicinal benefits—for our hearts and our health—the ginkgo projects hope, endurance and vitality.
Nancy Nelson Jewelry is excited to debut a few new pieces featuring brass-cast ginkgo leaves: Cherished Ginkgo Necklace and Ginkgo Drop Earrings at NY NOW
“I’ve always looked at ginkgo as art,” Nancy Nelson said. “I felt it was time to bring the leaf of a tree with so much beauty and positivity to a few pieces in the new collection." The playful earrings and Peruvian-Opal dotted necklace each take their own swing on the romantic curl and sway of the illustrious ginkgo leaf.
If you’re in New York this weekend, we hope you’ll take a gaze at our new collection at the annual NY NOW Jacob K. Javits Convention Center Feb. 5-8 (We’re at Booth 8200).
